We’ve got great news for Walt Disney World guests. The Maleficent dragon has returned to the Festival of Fantasy parade at the Magic Kingdom today! The float was a beloved part of the parade until May of last year when a malfunction caused the float to catch fire. The dragon featured intermittent fire breathing that wowed parade goers but ultimately led to a quick retirement. We are happy to report that Maleficent is back in the park parade starting today, with new safety features added.

What a better way to celebrate than with the  Maleficent cone avalible today at Storybook Treats. These yummy villainous treats are – lime soft-serve in a black waffle cone, topped with purple sugar and chocolate horns.

Along with the anticipated return of the steampunk styled float, the parade will also welcome back Prince Phillip; the Fairies Flora, Fauna and Merryweather; and Maleficent’s mischievous “Ravens”. The return of these aspects of the Festival of Fantasy parade is sure to excite park guests.
